Questions to Ask Your Doctor About RSV

Making notes before your visit, as well as taking along a trusted family member or friend, can help you through the first appointment with your doctor.

  • What is likely causing these symptoms? Are there other possible causes?
  • What, if any, tests will be needed?
  • Am I/Is my baby at risk for a severe RSV infection?
  • What is the best treatment for my RSV? Are there any side-effects?
  • What can I do to make myself/my baby feel better?
  • To what extent should I isolate my child while infected?
